Gwyneth talks gays and the Bible
Los Angeles - The subject of homosexuality in the Bible is foreign to Gwyneth Paltrow.
The Country Strong
actress recently took to her blog
to talk about the issue, recounting a conversation with her daughter Apple.
Paltrow wrote: "When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, 'Two mommies? How lucky is she?!'"
Earlier in her post she said: "A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologising for wishing death on gays from his Facebook page.
"This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the Bible.
"This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgement and separation in our society."
She then asked her followers: "What does it actually say in the Bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?"
Many people responded to her call with their own interpretations, explanations and other quotes from the Bible.
